“Every relayer has one thing- a story…” Trevor Wynn began his speech at the opening of last Friday night’s Relay for Life.  He talked about losing his grandmother and then his father.  When he researched this deadly disease, he found that the survival rate around that time was 67 percent.  He wanted to do more to help with the cause.  Shortly after his father lost his fight to cancer, he got involved with Relay for Life through Ellen Poll.  “I relay for my dad, and that’s my relay story.”

The fifth-annual Marie McQuiddy Daley softball tournament was held last weekend.  Marie was diagnosed with breast cancer in May of 2006.  She was a strong woman with a beautiful smile and a big heart, so the community was left with a void when she lost her battle with cancer on January 16, 2007.  Marie fought hard against cancer and played hard during her softball career in high school and college.

What brings people together?  It is typically an event centered on competition, or celebration, or charity, or remembering, or accomplishment.   American Cancer Society Relay for Life is one event that touches on all of these appeals to bring communities, families and individuals together.   Relay for Life is now in its 10th year in Morgan, and has earned its place on many people’s calendar as a tradition for many reasons.
